the hunter
17 February 2015

Marie is a former swimsuit model from Los Angeles who is now a wild pig hunter and homesteader in the Pahoa region of the Big Island of Hawaii. Marie and I are the same age and use tools to capture and shoot our materials for our work.  I followed Marie over the course of two years on various hunting excursions in order to better understand the process and ideology behind her work.  We would sometimes walk for hours through thick jungle.  sometimes we walked for so long that I forgot what we were looking for.  As you will see in the following images, she often appears with her back towards the camera, looking out into the distance, invoking all her senses, in search of meaning.

the following portfolio contains images of blood and dead animals.
